iNuke Boom, world's loudest iPod dock, weighs 700 lbs.





Can you find the iPod in this picture?

It's sitting atop the appropriately named iNuke Boom, an 8-foot wide, 4-foot-tall, 700-pound iPod and iPhone dock that pumps out 10,000 watts of power.

And if that wasn't outrageous enough the price tag is $29,999.

"Everyone is making something small," said Mark Wilder, vice president of marketing and communications for Behringer, the audio and music equipment company behind the iNuke Boom. "We said, 'Let's make something loud.'"

Wilder assures us that it is not a joke, and that an iNuke Boom has not only been produced but will be seen and heard at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show coming up in January.

"I'm not sure our neighbors are going to like us that much," he said.

Wilder admitted that the iNuke Boom is essentially a publicity stunt and marketing tool to promote the company's new line of home audio equipment.

"We made this one as a prototype, but we will make them and sell them if we take orders for them," he said.

So who is this person who would pay $30,000 for an iPhone docking station? "The buyer who has everything," said Wilder. "Probably someone with a sizable amount of property and wants to throw a party and wants something more elegant than a normal speaker system."

Elegance, we suppose, is in the eye of the very rich iPod owner.
